SILT – A petition to recall Mayor Dave Moore was verified with more than enough signatures on Tuesday afternoon,Town Clerk Sheila McIntyre said.

Members of a committee seeking to recall Moore submitted the petition by Friday’s deadline, with 128 signatures. McIntyre said she verified 124, with four being thrown out. The recall petition needed 111 signatures.

“Now we have a protest period until Sept. 28,” McIntyre said. “If there is no protest, the petition will go before the (Town) Board on Oct. 9.”

There is a 15-day period from the Sept. 14 date when the petition was submitted for a protest to be filed by a registered voter in Silt. If a protest is filed, a hearing date with a neutral party must be held by Oct. 14 – 30 days from the date the petition was filed.

The recall petition was initiated by Mayor Pro Tem Tod Tibbetts, who claims Moore has violated a number of state statutes, town ordinances and code of ethics.

Moore denies the claims. He has said recently that he did not intend to file a protest, and is confident he would win should a recall election be held.
